One of them was actress Angela Bassett’s nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever After, direct sequel to the hero’s first film, released in 2018. With the nomination, she became the first woman, first black person and first Marvel artist to be nominated for an Oscar for an adaptation of a company comic book. In other words, history being made before our eyes!


Remembering that the actress had already been nominated for an Oscar previously, 29 years ago, in 1993, for the film What’s Love Got to Do With It?, which served as a biography for singer Tina Turner. At the time, Bassett was nominated for the Best Actress category.

Black Panther out of the Best Picture category

black panther 2, on the other hand, was not nominated for the 2023 Oscar Best Film category, unlike its predecessor. The hero’s first film made industry history in 2018 by being the first superhero production nominated for the award’s most important category.


Furthermore, wakanda forever received another 4 Oscar nominations this year. They are: Best Costume Design, for Ruth R. Carter; Best Original Song, for Tems, Ludwig Göransson, Rihanna and Ryan Coogler; Makeup and Hairstyling, for Camille Friend and Joel Harlow; and Special Effects, for Geoffrey Baumann, Craig Hammack, Hanzhi Tang and Dan Sudick.

Recognition of the work of Marvel, directed by Ryan Coogler, is a cause for celebration for fans of the brand, who, little by little, are seeing the MCU films gaining space in the major film awards around the world. And, as we well know, the Oscars are known for snubbing productions of the genre.

In addition to Bassett, black panther 2 has Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke and Tenoch Huerta in the main cast.
